In this presentation, Schmidt examines how the cognitive paradigm of language learning compares to the sociocultural paradigm of language learning.

Schmidt covers the major points of difference between these two views, while at the same time offering insights into how these two views are interrelated. The presentation slides are available for download as a PowerPoint.
